Snow fall for couple of hours in Scotland and Crumbia made Britons to celebrate White Christmas

Published on : Tuesday, December 26, 2017

LondonBritain enjoys “White Christmas” as the snow falls in some parts of Cumbria and Scotland for a couple of hours.

 

 

According to the weather official reports there was a slim chance of wintry showers on Christmas Day – and Spadeadam in Cumbria and parts of southern Scotland saw rain turn into show late on December 25.

 

 

The highest temperature recorded in Cumbria and Scotland was 12.6C in Bude, Cornwall – weather warnings for snow and ice are in place on Boxing Day for southern, central and eastern Scotland, and the most northern parts of England.

 

 

A further warning for rain and snow is in place for the Midlands and Wales running from 6pm on Tuesday until 11am on Wednesday.

 

 

For years, Christmas was declared “white” if a single flake of snow was observed by a professional meteorologist falling on the roof of the London Weather Centre.

 

 

The Met Office of Britain has now broadened its definition to extend to other parts of the country, although the snow still has to be recorded by a professional.

 

 

The highest temperature of 12.6C is a few degrees off the record for the warmest Christmas, when 15.6C was recorded at Killerton, Devon, in 1920.
